Volcano forces Bagatelle tour cancellation

By Irish Echo Staff

As a result of disruptions to flights caused by the Icelandic volcano eruption, Liam Reilly and Bagatelle have been forced to cancel their U.S. Tour which was due to start this week. The tour has now been rescheduled for July.

Bagatelle became an Irish household name in the 80s with hits including the iconic "Summer in Dublin." The band's singer/songwriter, Liam Reilly, has also penned emigration themed songs like "Streets of New York," "Flight of Earls," and "Boston Rose."
